Trip Report

Final thoughts on Isla....what a truly wonderful time we had...our very first visit to Mexico and we definitely hit the jackpot...I can remember looking at posts and pictures galore of Isla for months and months before we actually arrived...and I was still a bit nervous about visiting uncharted territory...even though I Google Street toured the entire island several times...you are still a bit unsure...until the very moment you arrive...it is so welcoming...so accepting...so inviting...never ever a moment of feeling out of place... or that we were intruding....always a smile returned when you gave one...always a Hola, Buenas dias, tardes, noches....someone ready to teach you Spanish if you asked...my hubby was even comfortable asking about a word here and there...that made me so happy you cant even imagine...Isla Mujeres opened him up to experience what the Island and the people had to offer him...It was even he who talked to the vendors outside of the supermarket..by himself while I was inside...it was he who asked if what they were cooking was Cochinita pibil (his new favorite dish since our lunch in Coba)...and when I came out of the store he was excited to tell me that their eyes lit up when he asked them that...so we ordered some...eating from a side street vendor was something I though he would never do...he loved it and I loved Isla for it...

Will we ever go back...most certainly...it has embedded itself so deeply into our hearts that we are changed forever by the experience...

Much Love for Isla Mujeres and its people...

Thanks for looking...
